Kids in Limerick then will be disappointed that the date of their first Holy Communion has not been changed so they can go to a 1D concert. Gaelscoil an Raithin was forced to ballot parents after discussions about a potential move to three weeks earlier got out of hand. You might not see them in mass but they love a good row. Parents voted overwhelmingly to keep the original date, 24th May for communion, also the day of the boys sold out gig in Croke Park. Don’t worry though kids, they’re shit. Continue reading
